One of the most useful things I had as a bride and as a bridesmaid a few months later was a mini-scissors. There’s ALWAYS stuff to cut… stray threads, those stupid dress hanger strips, price tags, etc.

Following for ideas! 

@castaway83:  funny you mention the mini scissors. I was a BM last year and I cut the straps off of all of our strapless dresses with a pair of kitchen scissors!!  Mini ones would have come in handy

Definitely mini-scissors! And Mini deoderant/mints.

Travel sized deodorant? Other than that, I think you’ve got it covered (assuming you get some mini scissors).

blotting papers

stain remover pen/wipes (i’m notorious for spilling things on myself)

a small lint roller (if their dresses are a darker color this could be really handy)

hand sanitizer

lotion

tissues

a mini bottle of hair spray

double stick tape

snacks (just in case pictures or whatever take longer than anticipated, they have something to munch on)

I’d add floss, kleenex, and a mini comb. some mints wouldn’t be a bad idea either.

@MrsEME:  

 

I did something similar!

I included hand sanitizer, mini disposeable toothbrushes, tums, advil, altoids smalls, makeup remover wipes, shout wipes, tissues, lip gloss, mouthwash, deodorant, bobby pins, blotting papers, and blister block…

 

The items that were most used on my wedding day were hand sanitizer, tissues, altoids, blotting papers, snacks, liquor, and blister block.

 

I got RAVE reviews about the Blister Block!

I’m on my 4th DD getting married and we did this the first couple of go-arounds and have decided it is really a waste of money to have a big kit like that.  I went ALL out the first time around and we used none of it.

Think about it – when do you go somewhere and not have what you really need.  Who uses blotting papers anyway? 

This last wedding will be next Summer – I will toss some mini scissors, a Tide pen, and a mini sewing kit in case something needs a quick stitch, a travel size hairspray, and a few extra bobby pins.  I trust each of those girls will have tampons with her if she needs them, will use her own deoderant and brush her teeth before the wedding (and carry some gum or mints in her purse like most of us do), and will a nail file in her purse.

This is one of those wedding industry inventions to get you to spend money.  I fell for it a couple of times, but never will again.  Save your money!

@castaway83:  ha! I made my BFF this monster of an emergency kit. Then on her wedding day all she really needed was scissors! I was so annoyed with myself for not thinking of it but thankfully the sewing kit I included had some decent ones.
